When God Calls

When you are as old as I
Something happens and I don’t know why.
You look at life in a different light
Especially when you are alone at night.

You’re memory dims a little bit
And your body don’t seem quite as fit.
When you think about it you don’t feel old.
You seem to become a lot more bold.

You know life can be short or long
And you want to be living strong.
If you know God you feel His love
You know it comes from far above.

You know when God calls you home
He won’t leave you all alone
He will be with you each step you take
If He’s in your heart for His name’s sake.

Neither time nor man can come between
If you let Jesus keep your soul clean.
Keep a constant prayer on your lips
And He won’t let you make any slips.

Whatever you sow you also reap
So pray to God your soul to keep
Think of your life like a fine wine
And don’t give God a deadline.

When it’s time He knows what to do
And if you are wise, so do you.
Just turn your life over to God
And you will always be awed.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
